Pretty easy to tell the good neighborhoods from the bad ones.
If there are people...bad neighborhood.

Shabazz Way is another area to avoid.
Here in New England these street names are consistently bad neighborhoods if they are located in cities:

Since we are going to be house shopping in Florida, we plan to follow school buses.
Plus we check race demographics for each area we're interested in.

|Lt. Dave||Go to a McDonalds Drive thru. If you can understand the employees you speak with and they have good manners then you have a chance of being in a good neighborhood.|

as said ^ ^ ^ ^ previously, look at the number of payday loan places,
medicaide dentistry places, pawn shops, cheap fast food places instead
of the more expensive yuppie type joints, liquor stores, tote-the-note
used car lots, employment and day labor places, WIC offices.
better places usually have an abundance of churches, although you
need to look at what they are. if they're all something like iglesia ni
cristo etc. etc. or united temple of deliverance jesus christ abundant
faith in the almighty amen or something like that, you might want to
do a sunday recon.
also, look for abundant spray painted graffiti around the area.
walk around the local walmart and see how many locked cases
there are in the sporting goods area and the tool and cosmetic
recon the local grocery stores to see what kinds of foods are
check out any public parks for extreme littering and "woody"
"brushy" areas for signs of "homeless" camps. also look
at underpasses for same.
JMHO- after looking and searching things out for a couple
of decades, i found that (in this region anyway) you need
to be a couple of hours away from any urban area of any
size to get away from the filth. at least far enough to where
folks are hesitant to commute to and from their job. that, and
to where yuppie families won't move to after their problem
brats can't make it in a city school and not get suspended/expelled.
then they move out to the "country" to get their brat in a
"good" school to "straighten" him/her out. (as if that would help)
